people a chance to get gas at that price? >>guest: actually, it is a failing obama agenda. we use this to highlight to the public how soon, it has only been 3 1/2 years when gas was $1.84 a gallon the week president obama took office. we want president obama to stop the failed policy and implement policies that will bring the price gas back down the we had a set number, 150, and so many shows up we raised the number to 250 and over course of two hours we were able to sell gas for $1.84 in the flint, michigan, area. >>neil: when they hear that is what gas was, when the president first took office, are they surprised? >>guest: they are very surprised. people started lining up at 11:00 and we did not give gas out until 2:30. a lost them wanted their receipt to prove they paid $1.84 for gas. >>neil: do you find it interesting the gas thing has not resonated to the degree that many in the. one of my many crackpot theories is that it has been this way it is long that it is kind of like the pathetic economic numbers which have been muddling and as long as they are not tumbling, men -- am

general assembly week and this particular time we all watched it president obama did come to new york, didn't meet with benjamin netanyahu, talked to him on the phone, refused to allow the prime minister to come to washington even for that meeting. what is your analysis of what happened during general assembly week and what the impact is on us as americans? >> precisely correct. president obama about a week ago came to new york city for the u.n. general assembly. he did meet with world leaders last year decided to meet this year with zero world leaders and jetted off to campaign. he should have met with benjamin netanyahu, he should have met with the president of egypt and talked to him about maintaining security there and keeping americans safe in egypt. the white house response was he has a telephone he can call the leaders. why doesn't he use the telephone to call the view and walked to whoppi goldberg over the phone and take that time and meet with benjamin netanyahu and the president in the middle he's, our embassy is on fire, our president times find for the view but not leaders

the game a little bit while we are five weeks away from the big day. president obama is down-playing expectations big time. new jersey governor chris christie is predicting that that night will turn the election on its head. >> you saw the change this those polls happen very quickly and i'm here to tell you this morning it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night. come thursday morning the entire narrative of this race is going to change. martha: no sub subtlety in new jersey. welcome t i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. bill: governor romney is going to practice in massachusetts before heading to cal. bold words from governor christie, are they shared by the candidate himself, john? >> reporter: not exactly bill. i don't quite know how to put it except that chris christie has never been known as a guy who likes to color inside the lines. you're supposed to raise expectations for your opponent while lore errin lowering them for your candidate. they say chris christie, is chris christie. the romney campaign is h

that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: what white house press secretary jay carney and u.n. ambassador susan rice were telling the american people, not to mention the folks on capitol hill, was simply untrue. they were doing that for more than a week as we mentioned. now the latest offering up an explanation is general james clapper, the director of national intelligence. and here's his explanation and or excuse depending upon your point of view. we'll put it o

at this time. the remaining five weeks before the election the gap between the photo id's issued and the estimated need will not be closed. some supporters say the ruling shows a clear double standard. >> obama had a rally if you had to have a photo id to go to his rally. if it is good enough for his rally why not here. >> american airlines is now blaming clamps they say were installed incorrectly for the seats popping lose during three different flights since late last week. the airline is now inspecting other airplanes that use the very same clamps. 36 have been checked so far, 4 needed to be fixed 11 more planes still need to be inspected. the clamps were installed incorrectly during maintenance work by employees and contractors. there has been speculation the problems may have been the result of sabotage related to a bunch of ongoing labor disputes between the company and the union. but the airline ruling that one out. >>> another dead end in the search for jimmy hoffa's remains. michigan police say they didn't find human remains under a shed in roseville. police took soil sa

, every week they've had dozens of staff on the ground in new hampshire for obama for months and months, got a real head start on canvassing, phone calling and motivating that democratic base that had been sagging a year ago. that is almost up to the same level of intensity of republican support for mitt romney and that's what makes this race so close and i think it will stay close all the way to november 6th. gregg: kevin, great to see you, thanks so much for your incites. jenna: you talk about the ground game and voter turn out, what about absentee ballots, what about legislate the troops vote while serving overseas. we'll tell you next what the pentagon is doing to increase voter participation by our military men and women, that is ahead. plus a rare spider. looks creepy. gregg: albino spied jeer that spider was discovered a long a highway and because it was discovered construction on a highway project worth millions of dollars was stopped. we'll tell you why next.

rarely engaged in a one-on-one debate. president obama's staff is reportedly to keep the sometimes wordy president's answers brief and to the point. joining us is peter fin. good morning. wonderful to see you. our friend jim is away this week, so we are happy to welcome back jordan lieberman. good to see you again. so let's talk about it. the day is here. peter, i'll start with you. what's the feeling going into this debate? >> i think there's a lot of anxiety, allison. these things are very tense. i'm not sure we're going to see lincoln/douglas here tonight. this is a fairly loose format and it allows both candidates some time to go into longer answers and explain things. but as you point out, especially with president obama, i think they're trying to shorten his answers, keep them pointed and i think that they're ready for a pretty tough onslaught from romney. romney knows he has to prove something, and he's going to come at the president, i think fairly hard. but i think this president gives as good as he gets. i think it will be a strong back and forth. >> jordan, what do you think?
